Unarmed black teenager is murdered by authority figure after alleged petty theft. Community is outraged. Ignorant white people attempt to rationalize justification for the murder. Peaceful protests are met with tear gas, rubber bullets and armored vehicles. Riots and looting happen. Riots and looting are wildly exaggerated.

Did I leave out any details?

The parts where the riots and looting actually isn't greatly exaggerated, and the part where the locals start defending a few of their own shops the day after.

Autopsy released showed he was likely shot down with his hands up in surrender.

Executed on the streets for jaywalking. Smiley: frown

Partially. I think much of it has to do with less need for sites like this in general. MMORPGs these days pretty much hold your hand through questing and loot is often evenly scattered throughout the world or is semi-randomly generated from mix-and-match components ["Iron Shield" (15 Defense) "of Bright" (+3 INT) "Valor" (+10 hp)]. Also, developers/publishers are better at hosting their own forums these days.

Less overall population leads to less "out of topic" style traffic leads to slower forums leads to people leaving 'cause it's slow, etc. It's not as though the other forums are exactly hopping either. Anyway, someone's opinion on who deserved to be shot isn't what's driving or preventing traffic.

O-boards killed the allakhazam.

I'm assuming the last ones here have the most difficulty stopping one thing to do another.

I'm more inclined to go with this. Questing rpgs/mmos are extremely easy as compared with the original EQ. But still people want to talk about it, brag about it, ***** about it.

I think the forum lacks sufficient drama human interest to keep people interested. Smiley: clown

I clicked on your signature link to the Redit Asylum. It's different and frightening.

You miss the point, I'm shocked.

No one originally comes to ZAM to argue politics. They come to find out where the Golden Grain drops for the Mystic Weevil quest. Then they eventually perhaps filter over to the OOT forums. If no one needs to find out where the Golden Grain drops because there's a giant red exclamation point on your in-game map, then they don't come to ZAM to find out.

Oh, also Facebook. I know a bunch of old Asylumites still stay connected via Facebook so there's no reason to use forums like this just to share baby photos and talk about home purchases.
